We’ve reported previously that the city was seeking community members to help decide on whether to grant a zoning “departure” so that portables can be brought to Madison Middle School. Now, the Department of Neighborhoods has announced the date for the resulting meeting – with info on how you can comment even if you can’t be there:
The public is invited to discuss the development plans for Madison Middle School located at 3429 45th Ave SW. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 30 at 6 p.m. at the school. The Seattle School District is requesting a modification (known as a “departure”) from a City zoning regulation for reduced on-site parking in order to provide portables.
The Seattle School District will make a presentation on the modification before the Madison Middle School Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors, and Seattle School District and City representatives. After the presentation, the public is invited to provide comments. Following public comments, the committee will deliberate and consider the District’s request. Additional meetings may be held, if needed.
If community members cannot attend the meeting, written comments can be submitted by Tuesday, May 29 to Maureen Sheehan:

For additional information or to request an interpreter (by May 28) for the meeting, contact Maureen Sheehan, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, at 206-684-0302.
We first noted the portable plan in January.
